Social scientists told research funds will flow again

May 26, 2009

Speaking at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Carleton University on Monday, Science and Technology Minister Gary Goodyear called on researchers to bring him their ideas for next year's investments. Goodyear says he is looking onward to next year's budget, and is "firmly committed to working with all of you to determine where future investments are most needed." At current funding levels, researchers in social sciences and humanities are less likely to receive federal funding than those in natural or physical sciences. Globe and Mail
